In partnership with: FARFETCH
Even the most well-heeled of shoppers love a bargain and, when it comes to outfitting yourself for summer, there’s no better feeling than finding that Balenciaga dress or Max Mara sunglasses on sale. Allow us to point you then, in the direction of FARFETCH, which is currently offering 8,000 stylish pieces across menswear, womenswear, childrenswear and accessories at up to 60 per cent off.
If that amount of choice feels a little overwhelming, you’ll be pleased to know we’ve done the hard work for you. From Hermes to Lanvin, we’ve dived deep into the FARFETCH summer sale and uncovered the finest items from the hundreds of brands on offer. You’re welcome…
With a summer that promises to be full of celebratory reunions and friends keen to make up for lost time, it pays to have a super-versatile piece in your wardrobe that can be styled for anything from a picnic to a party. Ganni’s flattering floral print wrap dress is just the thing – and looks great when worn with Manebi’s classic wedge espadrilles.
The imminent return to the office also means it’s time to take a long hard look at the tired workwear you’ve been ignoring for the past year. Head back to your desk in style with the help of Etro’s pretty-yet-professional blouse (a multi-tasker that can also be worn tucked into Lanvin’s wide-legged jeans at weekends).

The arrival of sunshine means it's time to bring out your loudest, proudest statement shirt and if you’re in the market to upgrade your short-sleeve game, YMC’s floral offering is hard to beat. It will look great with pretty much any pair of shorts in your wardrobe but, for something a little chicer, we recommend pairing with Wales Bonner’s tailored straight-leg trousers.
Continue the smart-casual theme by throwing Eleventy’s summer blazer on over the top; its lightweight linen construction is perfect for staying chic even as the mercury rises. Finally, finish with Santoni’s understated leather sneakers. Made in Italy and featuring burgundy accents, they’re the cool guy’s alternative to summer loafers.

For the kids
You’re never too young to learn great style and, while a Balmain branded baby grow set may seem superfluous to requirements, when it’s this cute (and on sale), how can you resist? Likewise, FARFETCH's wide range of children’s Kenzo T-shirts, illustrated with tigers and elephants in various colourways, are too adorable to stop at just one.
Sticking with the elephant theme is Monnalisa and its beautiful drop-waist dress printed with intricate illustrations from the Disney favourite Dumbo. Red ribbon detailing give the piece a nautical feel while its durable cotton-blend material makes it comfortable and hardy enough to wear all day. For really active children, however, Bobo Choses' organic cotton dungarees, finished with vibrant splashes of colour, make for the ultimate go-anywhere, do-anything outfit. Their unisex designs means they’re perfect for handing down to siblings too.

Bags and accessories
Yes, you read that correctly. This is an Hermès Kelly handbag. On sale. Part of FARFETCH's ever-growing pre-owned range, this two-tone design was created in 1997 and remains one of the brand’s most highly sought after styles more than two decades later. A worthy investment piece. For men, meanwhile, Versace's floral-embossed leather holdall is perfectly sized for weekend staycations – which we’ll all be taking more of than we would strictly care to this summer.
Of course, no summer wardrobe is complete without a great pair of sunglasses and California-based brand Garrett Leight does some of the best. Inspired by LA’s famous Chateau Marmont, these unisex round-framed sunglasses will flatter almost all face shapes. Ladies, complete the look with Alighieri’s statement coin earrings. Not only do they look great but they also catch and reflect sunlight in a way that instantly illuminates the face.
